The Department of Physics at Arizona State University seeks applicants for a postdoctoral research scholar position to work in the field of classical molecular dynamics simulations of proteins. This is a fiscal year appointment. Candidates must be within five years from receipt of their doctoral degree.

The successful candidate will work with Dr. Matyushov to develop quantitative algorithms to describe conductivity in proteins. Substantial part of theory development will involve all-atom molecular dynamics simulations of proteins. Familiarity with QM/MM techniques is a plus. The theoretical component of this project will be applied to single-molecule conductivity measurements carried out in the laboratory of Dr. S. Lindsay at ASU. The postdoc hired herein will collaborate closely with experimentalists. Group websites: and Minimum qualifications: Applicants should hold a doctorate in a relevant field of science, such as theoretical chemistry, biophysics, chemical physics, by time of appointment. Strong background in high performance molecular dynamic simulations is required.

Desired qualifications: The applicant should have experience in the field of classical molecular dynamics simulations of proteins.

To apply, please submit electronically to the following materials: (a) a cover letter, (b) a CV, (c) a publication list, (d) a detailed summary of research experience and interests, (e) the names and contact details of three references.
